Submitted by cyeager on August 16, 2019 - 4:28pm

Are you ready to help a young person be successful in school? Does helping kids with homework sound like a fun way to spend your afternoon? Are you excited about reading and math?

Consider joining our team of dedicated volunteers helping K-12 students succeed in Sonoma County. The Sonoma County Library is recruiting volunteers for Homework Help at the Petaluma, Northwest Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Rincon Valley Library branches for the 2019-2020 school year.

“Our dedicated volunteers love engaging with families and sharing their unique skills to help kids learn. This weekly commitment is a great way to become involved in your community and help your library thrive!” said Cailin Yeager, Children’s Librarian at Petaluma Regional Library.

You can help children and teens throughout the school year, with homework assignments and literacy and mathematics skills. You will be helping students of all ages individually, or in small groups on a drop-in basis. The library will train you. A criminal background check (paid for by the library) is required for volunteers 18 and up.

Take this opportunity to make homework more fun for young people, gain education and library-related experience and have a great time. To apply, please contact the librarian in charge of Homework Help at your branch:
